A Koi pond is a water body designed to house Koi, a type of fish. This pond is usually created/ designed in a garden or atria and are different than the natural ponds. Koi is also known as Carp and are selectively bred  over many a years to get large sizes of fish with distinctive colored patterns in Black, Gold, White, Red and Orange. 

Koi pond's are created in an aesthetic and largely Asian format at gardens, atria and other locations to house the Koi fish. The Koi fish has special needs and thrives on plants and some time by eating smaller fishes for their survival. The pond primarily constitutes of muddy, dirty water, covered by dense foliage esp. lily plant. However people to give a better look and hygienic feel, installs water filtration system. Proper oxygen supply is yet another important consideration that goes while making such a pond.

  15. Good Job Haiku! No doubt koi pond requires intensive care to survive a minor carelessness can suffer them in trouble. Frequent mistake people do is; install low quality Pond Liner. Low quality pond liner contain chemical. This can be harmful for them.click here for technicals

  16. To remain alive or in existence of koi becomes difficult in very low temperature.Clean water, suitable temperature and a pond liner which does not contain harmful chemical like EPDM Pond Liner Repair is required .
